with a group of pennsylvania deer hunters. if you don't believe me, go see the movie, "deer hunter." it's a classic. so i'm confident closing the gun show loophole, gun safety and doing something about those high-capacity gun clips. it's going to be something reasonable hunters and second amendment fighters will find sensible. the more people have a say in writing the law, the better the law, the fewer the people, the worse the law. big corporations, for example, shouldn't write corporate fax law. and gun owners shouldn't be the only people involved in gun law. anybody can be shot by a gun, killed by a gun and they all ought to have a say. all of us should make gun law, not just the gun people. so let's go at it and please don't, please don't lose interest. this is a test of strength. keep your grip on this gun safety issue. the other side is still into keeping theirs, you know, with their cold, dead hands. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris: and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, the v
basic freedoms. >> wow, shed blood to stop gun safety. i don't think so. we're not going to let the voices of violence and extremism get in the way of this debate, not this time. >> i'm telling you that if that happens it is going to spark a civil war and i'll be glad to fire the first shot. i am not letting my country be ruled by a dictator. i'm not letting anybody take my guns, if it goes an inch further, i'll start killing people. >> start killing people? i mean this is vile, this is ugly stuff. they are in full freakout mode. but we are serious people wanting real change, the threats are all behind us now. people behind newtown, connecticut, to chicago, illinois, are standing up and saying no. this time is different, this time we wouldn't back down. this time we're not going to let the threats stand in the way of progress and protecting our kids. with me now, e.j.deon, "the washington post" contributor. this week he wrote about people getting on board with gun control. and melissa harris-perry, joining me. >> good to be with you, and melissa. >> what are you looking at, we'r

. i don't think so. we're not going to let the forces of violence and extremism get in the way of this debate. not this time. >> i'm telling you, if that happens, it's going to spark a civil war and i'll be glad to fire the first shot. i am not letting this country be ruled by a dictator. if it goes one inch further, i'm going to start killing people. >> i mean, this is vile. this is ugly stuff. they are in full freakout mode. we're serious, people, wanting real change. the tricks, the threats, it's all behind us now. people from newtown, connecticut to chicago, illinois are standing up and saying no more. this time it's different. this time we won't back down. this time, we're not going to let the threats stand in the way of progress and protecting our kids. with me now, washington post columnist and msnbc contributor, this week, he wrote about the need for republicans to get on board with gun control. and melissa harris perry host here on msnbc. thank you both for joining me tonight. >> good to be with you. >> e.j., what are you hearing about what the administration is lookin
in congress just don't get it. boehner is vowing to stop direct talks with president obama in the future. and let me introduce you to this fella that he's got with him now. he's tom cotton. a newbie congressman from arkansas. today, he unvailed his big, new ideas. >> i think that the congress, as a whole, may be able to say no to barack obama a little bit more. >> genius. say hello to the president. what could possibly go wrong? good plan, mr. colt ton. . >> i don't think what washington needs is more compromise. i think what washington needs is more common sense and more principle. >> yeah, sure. why compromise? washington is working so well without it. let's just keep doing what we're doing. i mean, why on earth would a republican want to compromise you? what good can compromise do for a politician. now, let's be clear. chris christie is a conservative republican. i disagree with them on issue after issue. but on some things, he's showing a willingness to compromise and from the public's reaction, you can tell that's what citizens want. and we also just had a little thing called an ele
on the fiscal cliff vote to vote with nancy pelosi and move us forward? i don't know that he can. but it is significant when you've got boehner and you've got mitch mcconnell and even newt gingrich saying the debt ceiling is a loser. because it is. it's a loser for the economy and for them politically. >> because the point is you wrote yourself, the gop can't be trusted on the safety net in sa lon.com. let me read your words to jared and get his reaction. you need a partner to negotiate smart changes and today's republicans aren't trying to fix the two programs. many are trying to kill it, turn medicare into voucher care and privatize social security. >> you know, the republicans have two goals when it comes to fiscal policy. one is to insulate their wealthy donor class from any tax increases and the other is to cut away at the functions of government that protect economically vulnerable people. particularly the social insurance programs. and one of the things they've done and it's been quite machiavellian is to create crises where none exist in order to convince people that the
a situation where th they're obviously talking about cuts. but one of the problems is people don't really wants cuts. and, also, i think the other reality is if you look at what's happened so far, i think we've cut out quite a bit. revenue that's come in so far, actually, i think it's been a third or fourth of that. so thal eve got a real challenge going forward in terms of what are we going to speak with. >> michelle, as long as it's out there where you have some just overtly saying shutdown is good, i'll do shutdown. don't we need the leadership like mcconnell to say unequivocally, we're not talking about a shutdown nou. it's not a good thing. even nut gingrich, the architect of the shutdown in the '90s says it's not good. it makes one wonder are the others speaking in a set or tone that they can use as an option and that that would be disastrous for this country and the economy. >> i think if the cliff negotiations taught us anything, you can't listen to the hardline luster this early in the game. if you'll look at how close we came with the last stand off, everybody takes their hardli
